See below a random collection of resources and tools I use on a daily basis.
Exponential Organizations: Why new organizations are 10x better, faster, and cheaper.
Love this book. Very eye-opening. Challenges traditional business models in particular. Lots of practical advice. Simply a must-read for anyone in business in the 21st century.
Blue Ocean Strategy: How to Create Uncontested Market Space and Make the Competition Irrelevant.
One of the most famous books on company strategy, yet in my opinion still one of the most important ones. Every manager of a business should read this.
Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win.
This book simply helped me to understand that it's often the many little things that make all the difference at the end. Instilling this in every team member can have a profound impact.
The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book).
First heard about this book in an interview with Bill Clinton, who said it's a shame he didn't discover this book earlier. After reading it, I understand why!
The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.
This is the only book I read from Jack Canfield. Jack did a great job collecting hundreds of resources and helpful tools and teachings. Highly recommended.
Think and Grow Rich: The Practical Steps to Transforming Your Desires into Riches.
Every person on the planet should read this 100+ year-old book. Read it at least once, better several times. Contains a huge amount of nuggets of wisdom.
Sweatcoin: Get paid to walk!
One of the top-rated apps in 30+ countries, rewarding your daily steps with a new-generation currency you can spend on cool products, donate to charity, or, convert into SWEAT.
LastPass Password Manager: A simple yet great password manager.
LastPass greatly simplifies your life by storing all your passwords, notes, banking infom etc. in an encrypted way, across all platforms.
FTX.com: Simply the best mobile trading app out there.
Great to track your portfolio performance and directly place trades.
I Am Mindful: Guided meditations & resilience activities personalized just for you.
Having met Bechara in 2017, Mobio's Chief Scientist and CEO, I've been using their apps ever since, which operate at the intersection of bio-feedback, brain health, and deep meditation.
Insight Timer: My favorite meditation app with 3 million meditators and lots of free content.
I meditate a lot, basically every day. Insight timer makes it super easy to keep discovering beautiful, new and guided meditations. I signed up for their premium service to support them. Highly recommended.
Omvana: A personal meditation and mindfulness teacher. Love the "Six Phase Meditation" by Vishen Lakhiani.
Whenever I do this meditation in the evening, I feel I can think more clearly, my productivity increases and I can focus longer.
Zidisha: An online microlending community that directly connects lenders and borrowers - no matter the distance or disparity between them.
Check out my profile page to see the borrowers I support. Use this link to send $25 to an entrepreneur for free.
The Sun Exchange: Monetize sunshine! This one-stop shop allows you to collect a monthly rent in BTC by leasing out panels in solar-rich but power-poor countries.
Besides an above-market 11% IRR, help slowing climate change, create jobs and power Africa.
Watsi: A platform enabling individual donors to directly fund medical care for individuals in developing countries. Super easy to set up a subscription.
I am a monthly donor. Happy to be able to help others, even if it's just a little bit. Visit my profile page.
